iCoupler Technology with isoPower - Integrated, Isolated Power
Integrating power supply isolation with data signal isolation, until recently, has been a challenge because of the difficulty of transmitting power from the non-isolated system side to the isolated field side. In the past transferring power across an isolation barrier required a lot of area, with an expensive module or a complex discrete solution.
Analog Devices has addressed this issue by introducing isoPower - an extension of the iCoupler technology. isoPower is a complete and fully integrated isolation solution for power transfer across an isolation barrier using micro-transformers. The iCoupler technology enables both signal and power to be integrated into a single tiny surface mount package with isolation up to 5kV.
Figure 1 shows how our newly released ADuM5401 reduces board space by up to 70% and a cost reduction up to 50%.
